Oh so Posh and Sparkly

Hey Everyone! I am sooo tired. I woke up extra early today to go to jury duty. I was so excited to finally get called for jury duty until I realized a few things. Firstly I had to either ride the train or drive downtown which displeased me. THEN I realized I had to pay for parking in either scenario. I am cheap. I don't appreciate having to pay for parking to perform my civic duty lol. THEN I realized that I had to be there at 8am which is about the time I usually wake up. By the time I put all this together I was no longer excited about jury duty. 

I barely slept because I was quite anxious about having to ride the train since they no longer take money. I ran out the door without coffee because I was running late. I then put too much money on my transit card because I thought we could use it for parking but nope, I had to use my cash for parking. I never use public transportation so I will have to find a reason to hop on the train a few times and use my credits. I ended up getting to the court house a few minutes late but I think they expect that because they didn't start until well after 9am. I didn't have cash to eat at the snack bar and didn't know where anything was so I am lucky I brought some cereal bars to munch on. I never got called for an actual jury. They showed a few movies but the best part about the day was finishing the second book of the Hunger Games. I pretty much was hoping not to get called once I got into the book. We were able to leave around 4 and as soon as I walked out the front of the courthouse I noticed a Quiznos directly across the street. DUH for me! I wouldn't have had to starve all day.  

Today I am going to show you my St. Patrick's Day mani. It wasn't what I intended to do but I still loved it. I was going to change my mani Saturday morning but then I got to the great polish organization of 2012 and didn't get around to it so this one stayed. 

I used two coats of Revlon Posh and a gradient with the green and gold snowman glitter. It was very St. Patrick's Day!

It looks a little washed out with the flash but it is a gorgeous green. I love the shade and it is so very vibrant. It screams grass green and beautiful lawns to me.

The formula was great and I was very impressed with the polish. I really like the bold color and am trying to think of another mani for it. 

My cuticles and hands are so ragged though. The cuticles are starting to heal from all the cuts and craziness but they are still dry and ragged. 

This mani held up really well in my crazy organizing fit and building a helmer. 

I could have gotten away with another couple of days. The only real issue with the mani is where I dinged my finger while it was still wet and painted over it. That is a little visible on my middle finger but that had nothing to do with the polish and everything to do with clumsiness.  

Alrighty since I am in the middle of my Fantasy Baseball draft I should probably stop rambling and focus on the players I am drafting. If my team is awful this year I think we will know why. 

That's all for now :)


  1. This is a lovely, vibrant green. I used Don't Mess with OPI for my St'Patty's mani and did some clovers and glitter. I would love to see some pictures of your collection!

    So sorry you went trough all that trouble for jury duty. We don't have anything like that here. I just finished (like 30 min ago) the first book of the Hunger Games. I read it in less than 24 hours. Is the second one as good?

  2. Oh you know I didn't think of Don't Mess with OPI lol I love that one. I wanted to do clovers but ended up with the plain glitter. I am working on pictures of the collection! :) I have some pictures I took from the great organization that I am going to post. I will take better stash pictures soon though :)

    Jury Duty is part of life I guess lol I have only been called twice in the 15 years that I have been eligible so I guess it isn't too bad lol. OMG Book 2 is GREAT!!! I was going to be very cranky had they called me and interrupted my reading it! I will tell you this, it leaves you hanging! I haven't been able to start Book 3 yet because once I start I am not stopping. I read both 1 & 2 in less than 24 hours each too. Once I start I get hostile if you make me stop lol


Wow, it has taken me a year to figure out how to write this here! I love comments! I read them all and try to respond as quickly as I can. Thank you for reading and commenting!
